Johannesburg - The SA Football Association (SAFA) is appealing to football fans around the country to put aside their club affiliations and support Orlando Pirates in their all-important CAF Champions League first leg final fixture against Egypt's Al-Ahly on Saturday.

Jordaan said South Africans needed to come out in numbers and make sure when the players trotted out onto the field, they knew the whole country was behind them by seeing a packed Orlando Stadium.

"Get a good result at home and you have one hand on the trophy."
